Water as a Lubricant and Soaking the Stones

As is usual with Japanese Water Stones they need to be saturated and the constantly doused with water if maximum performance is to be achieved whilst they are in use. To do this, simply place your Japanese Water Stones in a bucket of water and leave them there to soak for about 5 to 10 minutes before you start to use them. Then, whilst in use, Keep sprinkling the surface of the stone with clean water and or when it becomes dry. It is important to note, however, that you should never leave Japanese Water Stones in water if there is the remotest chance that the water they are in will freeze, since there is a strong possibility that this may crack your stone.
